Food banks across the country are struggling to keep up with demand this year. According to Feeding America, 1 out of 6 people are struggling with hunger. In 2010 Fast Park collected over two tons of food to distribute to hungry families. In addition, Fast Park also donated one dollar for every pound of food collected locally, to aid in their mission.
“As a company we are always seeking ways to give back to causes in which we believe,” said Melanie Chavez who oversees construction and branding for Fast Park. “Hunger is an epidemic in our communities, and we believe every donation makes a difference. The annual Canned Food Drive brings our employees and customer together to work toward a common goal. Every year I am impressed with the generosity of our customers, last year we doubled the previous year’s donation.”
